    Senior Design Capstone Needs

    I have a capstone team that needs a block of white oak, 8" X 8" X 12" ASAP. This piece will be used for a project for the Queen Anne's Revenge to support coring of concretion of recovered cannon.
    Any ideas for sourcing? Donations appreciated.

    Call or email me at the office dixone"at"ecu.edu or 252 737 1031. This is a pressing need for about 3 students to graduate 12/15.

    Thanks

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    The only person I can think of on here that might have something like that in White Oak would be Scott Smith (scsmith42). You might want to contact him directly.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    does it need to be solid? In other words, it would be way easier to just laminate.

    Yes, a glue lam would work as long as the glue is water and (mild) caustic resistant. We don't have time to experiment. I'll take suggestions on glue/epoxies if anyone has experience in caustic environments.

    I've sent a PM to Mr. Smith.

    The long answer is that it depends and you should check with the manufacturer. The short answer is that Delta Marine epoxy 100 is highly caustic resistant. unless you use a solvent, it will hold up quite well to whatever you throw at it.

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    These Engineering requirement terms are beyond me.

    to support coring of concretion of recovered cannon.
    What is a capstone project and how will this chunk of white oak wood be used in your statement above? Impermeable to water and caustic resistant means what in the application (subject to off and on water and caustic or submersed 24/7)?

    A pic or a sketch would help all of us I think.

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    Capstone is an (ABET) accreditation requirement for all engineering programs. It is a 'culminating' design activity that demonstrates capability to perform entry level engineering. At ECU we chose to use industry sponsored projects (~80%), non-profit sponsored projects (5%), campus based projects (~5%), and gov't agency sponsored projects (~10%). Our projects run 400-600 FTE hours of design.

    For more info google "ABET".

    The wood block supports cannon which might way up to two tons. The caustic is used to chemically remove the concretion through years of soaking in pools located above ground at the old VOA site near campus. The students developed a robust design and factored in consideration that some splashing of the weak caustic solution might occur.

    I don't have a sketch of the apparatus I can share at this time. Not sure I could release a sketch without a signed NDA. The QAR folks can be a little sensitive. However, if we can get all the fab work done by Dec. 4th and you would like to serve as a design review judge, you should get to see pictures. Signed NDA will be required. The apparatus should be at the QAR site after mid-Dec. They give tours. Or you can see recovered/'restored' artifacts at the Maritime Museum in Beaufort.

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    Thanks Gene, I don't need a sketch since I have a fairly good idea of what the process is. These tanks use sodium carbonate to soak the cannons which are supported on blocks (wood maybe?). The new Capstone project design doesn't sound like it'll be used for total immersion.

    Here's a cannon after the restoration process.

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    Your welcome.

    For coring the cannon are removed from the soaking pools. The wood block will be notched for cannon support and the cannon strapped to it. The wood block is mounted on a horizontally mounted screw jack which is mounted to a vertical screw jack. All this 'screw jacking' is to firmly and steadily align the cannon for core drilling.

    I should be able to get a tour arranged for ncwoodworkers at the VOA site with just a little advanced notice.

    OBTW, not much gold has been found at the wreckage. Still the wreck site is restricted space as I understand.

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    wood absolutely love a tour good sir. A question why not use 8x8 pressure treated lumber? There is a marine level of it that lives in salt water. On shelf material,easily replaced, available almost anywhere, most likely right close to your facilities. Find local lumber supplier

    Re: Senior Design Capstone Needs

    PM at the office email me in the OP with available time/date preferences and contact information and I'll have the conservators contact you directly or through me. I'll need to know the number in your party.

    FWIW, sometimes they allow pictures, sometimes they don't.

    If you want to see the capstone project, I suggest waiting until 2018. I have no control over when it will be in use. However, I will ask them to give me a head's up.

    We all know he buried it on Shackleford. : )
    About 10 or so years ago while diving the Theodore Parker I passed over the location of the Queen Anne and it was marked by a small buoy at the time. Always wondered how they monitored the site giving the location.

    Stuart, thanks, Scott has donated to the cause.

    Do I owe you a phone call tomorrow?
